Racism is an issue for everyone. We know that having a conversation about racism can be scary, messy and painful. In this space we, will share about the messes we made with one another in what turned out to be a profound action research project we didn’t quite know we were embarking on in preparation for our Social Awareness Group for Worldwork Greece. We will show a few clips of the theatre pieces we created out of our lived experiences making a mess with one another. We will share our reflections and invite those present to get into the arena and engage all together. Our conclusion is that it is impossible to not make messes as we make our way down this river. Our hope is that we come away provoked, a bit more awake and open to starting your own action research projects amongst your communities and small groups.
